Does baking powder go bad?

2

Baking powder will not go bad but it will lose its potency over time. So your cakes and other baking won't rise as they should. It's a good idea to replace old baking powder after about 1 year.

Baking powder is a combination of baking soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch and should last somewhere from 6 to 12 months. To test if it is okay, stir half a teaspoon baking powder into a cup of hot water. It will start to fizz if still fresh enough to use.
